Substance Abuse in Utah

by Eleven 15. November 2010 17:00

Prescription medication overdoses kill more Utahns than automobile accidents and are one of the leading causes of death for Utah’s 25- to 54-year-olds.

As part of Eleven's commitment to the community, this series focuses on learning more about preventing and overcoming abuse of both legal and illegal substances. The specials combine expert discussions and compelling documentaries to educate viewers about community resources that can help addicts take control of their lives and that can help families deal with the effects of addiction.

Funding for the Living Essentials from BYU Special Report comes from a generous grant from the Edward G. Callister Foundation, dedicated to increasing knowledge about the biological, personal, and social factors that underlie substance misuse and from the contributing members of KBYU. Editorial and content support is by BYU’s College of Health and Human Performance.
